The show was pretty good this year. Considering all the sex hype music that was out this year. ‘Blurr line’. Kinda feel offended by that one. Wait, Women are animals?  Hmm!

Anyway, ‘Royal’ being song of the year struck me as odd. It wasn’t that great of a song. I felt like she was whinning of herself forever being broke. Well in the song anyway. But how does that relate to others? We can’t think that way. But hay, she won so. Good for her.

Ya, I am a fan of music, Always have. These days I listen to k-love christian station 94.3 FM. I do listen to contemporary music just to know what being put out there. Some of it is good. Others misleading.

One song that stuck with me this year was Capital Cities: ‘Save and sound’. Great song and I really enjoyed the video. It was nominated for ‘Best video catagory’ but Suit & tie Justin and Jay z won that one. Again, I’m not sure why? I saw the video, no biggie.

When I watch the video and  it makes me so emotional. Of how far we’ve come and how precious life is and to enjoy life, we need to live life because it goes so fast. What is here today will be gone tomorrow and all we’ll have are the memories. So we all need to make good ones. Regardles of our fortune.

And if we love one another and help each other thru, we’ll all be save and sound. I’ll tell you, I can’t get enough of the song. You tube it, and you see what I mean. I hope you like it as much as I do.

Other songs I like this year: Get Lucky, Radio Active, Roar, Give Me a Reason (Pink).


A Little Serious

Published January 7, 2014 by emmaperez1961

Ya, I guess you can say I’m a little serious about baking and cake decorating. Just like all other crafts, it takes my stress away as well.

Of course, like others, I enjoy the decorating part most of all. After all it is an art. They are coming out with sugar art but that’s just alittle to complicated for me right now, although it is beautiful. I’ll leave that to the experts.

I’m trying to get to the point where I won’t have to order cakes anymore and I can just spit them out myself. Slowly but surly I know I’ll get there. The other parts of baking that I enjoy as well, is the decorating of cookies. So much fun! Pies come in third and ya, still have to work with danish. which I havn’t tried yet. But I will. Count on it.

So happy because, I finally learned how to make whipped cream. Can’t wait to make a ‘Lemon whipped cream pie’.

If your probably wondering why the cake has only half coconut? My teenage son doesn’t like it. The things we do to please our kids! lol

I just ordered my 14 piece decorating tips, so I really haven’t worked with them. Except for the writing tip. I’m trying to improve in that area. I know I can do better with more practice.

So ya, their is nothing you can’t do with a little practice and you tube. So invest in your supplies and get going.  Happy Baking!DSC08003
